Skype lite won’t actually let you Skype?

I stumbled across Skype Lite today. It took them long enough to launch a version of their calling app for the most obvious of target devices, the mobile phone. Sure there has been a Windows Mobile version for a while now, but I’m not a big fan of Microsoft’s mobile efforts. The new ‘true’ mobile version runs on Java enabled phones, so probably on yours as well.

Fring and Nimbuzz (I recommend the latter) have been offering free ‘skype calls’ (by which I mean voice calls over data networks) for a while now, so the real kicker is that Skype itself does not seem to allow that. At least not for free. And free calls is what Skype is all about, right?
